Will the iPhone work in Europe, Asia, etc?

Yes, the iPhone will work overseas, and not just in Europe and Asia. The iPhone is a GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) phone. GSM, which uses narrowband TDMA, was first introduced as a standard in 1991 and is now in place in over 100 countries.

Access to receive and place calls from outside the United States will require additional services from AT&T/Cingular, which you will need to arrange with them before your phone will operate in such a fashion, but the phone is perfectly capable for worldwide use.

I read most of the comments here. I am writing this from Iran. I studied in the US during the 90's.
What I have learned during my 10 year education in the US is that majority of the US citizen beleive what CNN and other US media tell them. The Media that is heavily controled by the Jews.
I think it's best for the American citizen to grab their passport and make a trip to Iran. I am sure this trip will change your mind about who really is barbaric, sexiest, racist, and whatever negative things you say about Iran and Middle easterns.

With love.
Your old friend from Tehran, Iran.
